I need a little help. I have destroyed 2 of theses now. Bought the third. I don't know the proper name of the part but when I try to connect to the side of the engine it no longer lines up. What could be causing this? Thanks in advance!

I have not worked on a model that old. It looks like either a speed sensor for the pod (if you have one) or a gear position indicator.

The service manual for your machine can be downloaded for free here.

Hope that helps.

 

 

From looking at your second picture, it appears the mount on the right side is broken so when you try to screw in the part it stresses the one side causing it to break off.

(the seat for the part is not level) You could try to shim that side to make it level, or tighten in the left side and for the right screw, put some blue locktite on it and only screw it in until its snug, not tight.

Looks like a chunk of paper gasket left on the right side in the 2nd picture.  If you don't get that cleaned off and the mounting surface flat all the way across you'll break an ear off the new part tightening it up.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.
